Nominet opens Zone file to members

10th May 2016

Nominet is making the zone files for all of the domains we manage, and a file of all registered domains, available to members for the first time.

Individual copies of the zone file for each extension (. uk, co.uk, ltd.uk, me.uk, net.uk, org.uk, plc.uk, sch.uk) will have all the resource records associated with each zone but no WHOIS data.

The file of all registered domains will include active domains that are suspended or without an associated name server – information that does not appear in the zone file.

Both files will be a snapshot of the registry, taken at 8.30am and will be available from 9am the following day.

The first files will be available on 17th May.  Members interested in accessing this data can now sign up via Online Services.

The data is free to Nominet members.
